    You did exactly the right thing uninstalling NAV and restarting your computer. It doesn't scan incoming or outgoing e-mail but it's just as good as NAV. I personally use it. Please click on the colored AntiVir link below; Click the Download button; Click the red/black AntiVir icon to start the download. Download done? - double-click the download's icon to install AntiVir. You update AntiVir by being on-line; clicking the red umbrella System Tray icon; Pointing to Start Internet Update; clicking the Updater's Start button.

    NAV should have been sold with a can of bugspray. Very hard to maintain.

    Just use AntiVir and don't read any e-mail atachment from any sender.

    Oh hell yea, you can re-install NAV again sure. As long as you've restarted your computer between install/uninstall. Some folks just prefer that name brand full featured stuff, very understandable. NAV is the premium AV product out there, you bet. Sorry 4 the delay in answering. I'd either use NAV for a commercial product or AntiVir for a free one.

    I can't say if you won't have the same problem or type of issues arise like you had before :( but uninstalling NAV, restarting; re-install would have been the first thing I'd have tried to resolve this issue if it were me.

    I just recommended AntiVir because of the cost and it's less buggy than NAV, I know from personal experience.

    Reply back as to how it goes.
